WATCH: Redskins Hall of Fame CB Darrell Green wins 100m Championship in 1982

Washington Redskins Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green was a very fast man for pretty much all of his adult life.

In 2016 -- and 2012 and 2008 and all the years in between -- the name Usain Bolt defines fast. Not just "the pizza delivery guy arrived in under 30 minutes" fast, but the don't blink, breathtaking kind. For nearly two decades in the NFL, Darrell Green defined fast. The Washington Redskins drafted the cornerback, who Charley Casserly called the fastest player he's ever seen, from Texas A&I in large part because of his Olympic-ian level speed. Before he chased down Tony Dorsett on Monday Night or ruined passing game plans by keeping stride with hopeful receivers, Green was blitzing the field in the 100-meter race for the 1982 Division II NCAA Championship.

Watch it here, but remember, don't blink and keep breathing.
